Bottle- Pours a slightly hazy bronze color with a good off-white head and lacing. Has a nice fresh grain aroma with some citrus mixed in with a touch of caramel. Starts with a citrus bite then a very light sweetness and a bit of a spicy finish with a nice touch of bitterness. Fairly medium body, nice carbonation, quite crisp and smooth. Easy drinker, good for the style. I would like to try this on Tap/Cask.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at McNellie’s in downtown Tulsa. Pours a cloudy amber color with a frothy off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of biscuity malts, earthy hops, yeast, mild spices, and a little toffee. Flavor of biscuity malts, leafy hops, mild spices, and toasted sugar. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I initially thought this might be called an ’Irish ale’- it isn’t really what I’ve experienced before in a bitter, but that could also be my lack of experience with the style.

12 ounce bottle. Pour is copper red with a lightly carbonated head with lots of fizzy carbonation. Very little aroma from this beer, what aroma is there is faint citrus hops and a little bit of caramel malt. Some banana yeast that reminds me of a weak Belgian. Taste is caramel floral hops with a very bitter finish. Some Belgian characteristics come through in the yeast, though it’s not as ethereal as those styles of beer. Kind of like an English Bitter made with American hops and yeast. It’s okay.

I went to a pizzeria, I ordered a slice of pizza, the fucker gave me the smallest slice possible. If the pizza was a pie chart for what people would do if they found a million dollars, the fucker gave me the "donate it to charity" slice. I would like to exchange this for the "keep it!"

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 Bomber via trade thanks to stephens101 on BA.
Pours mostly clear amber with a large, lasting off-white head.
Aroma is caramel, earth, floral hops, and...Belgian yeast? Yeah, I’m getting a little bit of that, strangely enough. Is this really a bitter?
Flavor is nice and subtle with caramel and biscuit malt, earthiness, and grassy and floral hops. Slightly bitter on the finish. The Belgian yeast notes also appear in the flavor, along with some fruitiness, maybe apple or citrus.
Medium body and average carbonation. Nothing special on the mouthfeel really.
Definitely a sessionable one, as it is very drinkable (and I don’t know the ABV, but I don’t care, session beer purists).
This ain’t half bad for an Oklahoma beer!

Pours a hazy golden brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is very nice with grassy hop smells as well as some malt. The flavor is malty sweetness with toffee and biscuit malt. There is a nice amount of hop bitterness to balance things out and you also get some spiciness towards the end. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had on tap at Jazmo Bourbon Street in OKC. Pours clear copper with off-white head. Aroma is pale malt, spices and hops. Flavor is pale malts, spices, caramel and some bitter hops. Medium bodied. Sort of between a bitter and english pale. Not to bad.
